Emergency Room Errors
Emergency rooms are typically filled with a large number of people who present a variety of problems and have the need for immediate assistance and treatment. They are typically very busy and, at certain times, filled to capacity with the need to find more beds for more patients. The intense nature of emergency rooms create the prime environment for mistakes to occur. The most common medical mistakes that occur in emergency room settings include misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose. Emergency room malpractice typically occurs as a result of:
- Disregarding your medical symptoms by dismissing them as common or determining that they are not life threatening.
- Failing to really listen to the symptoms presented.
- Failing to engage in the process of elimination to discount any other illness with similar symptoms.
- Failing to run tests due to a patient’s lack of ability to pay or the lack of maintaining a valid insurance policy;
